Weight Loss Challenge: Week 6 Progress

Workout wise this week:

4/4: Day of Rest
4/5: AMT machine for 40 min. and Pilates with Jordan
4/6: Elliptical for 20 min. and went to the zoo with Matthew for 4 hrs and I think we walked around for 2.5-3 hrs.
4/7: Pilates with Jordan (I was cleansing)
4/8: AMT for 47 min.
4/9: Elliptical for 21 min. and Treadmill for 26 min.

Diet Wise:
I met with a nutritionist at the gym my work acquantaince will be opening this fall. I went in to do a fat analysis and we talked about my calories. He really thought I wasn't eating enough and that I needed to up them to 1600. He also recommended eating protein (shake or bar) 1 hr. before working out and 1/2 shake or bar 15 min. after working out. I started more calories and the protein part on Thursday. I'm really more eating in the 1400-1600 range and the protein is helping me stay really full.

Last night we went to Jason's Deli for dinner before going to the Muse concert. I did research beforehand as they had their nutritional info online. I had a really yummy Turkey wrap and got fruit on the side. I felt full, satisfied, and dinner was only 593 calories. Eating out can be done if I make choices beforehand that work in my calorie range.

Results: 2 pounds.

I am so close to 20 pounds and hoping that I'll break it next week. I'm off traveling this week for work, but am determined to keep things going. I might weigh in and blog next Monday when I get back so I don't have to pack my scale with me. We'll see.

Also, Isabelle's 1st birthday was today. I indulged just a little in chips, 1 cupcake and some yummy cheesy potatoes. I figure it will help throw my body off anyways so my metabolism can't get adjusted and will shed weight faster - right? :)
